Prescription Drug Monitoring Program

The goal of the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program is to reduce the incidence of abuse of, and addiction to, controlled substances in the population of New Hampshire, while ensuring that patients receive adequate and timely care for pain and other conditions that can benefit from a regimen of controlled substances or other appropriate services.

Senate Bill 286 was signed into law by Governor John Lynch on June 12, 2012. It created a controlled drug health and safety program (prescription monitoring program) funded entirely through the Federal & private grants & at no cost to the state general fund. New Hampshire joined 48 other states currently with prescription monitoring programs in place. The program monitors controlled drug prescriptions (in DEA Schedules II through IV) to track/flag "doctor shoppers" and multiple/duplicate controlled substance prescriptions for a patient and notify law enforcement and the various state/federal regulatory boards of any unusual activity.
